Virginia Before and During the War free pdf Excerpt from Virginia Before and During the War In the winter of 1889 I commenced writing the little work now published, to amuse me in my leisure time, with no thought of publishing. As I progressed, I came to the conclusion that those who might read might, from its perusal, form a truer estimate of the state of society and of opinions in the South and especially in Virginia, than usually prevails. In treating the history of the times, and of the character of the actors therein, I have endeavored to be fair and true. Above all things, historic veracity should be observed. Whilst it is right that we should respect the memory of great men who have gone before us, we ought not, in admiration for their success or brilliant achievements, make a false estimate of their characters. Whatever estimate we may form of the justifiableness of our civil war, and of the characters of the prominent actors therein, all must recognize the fact that it settled forever some great questions, and that secession of states can never take place again. We are united for good or for evil, probably for ages- and, if we are ever divided, the dividing line will not run as in 1861. Believing, as I do, that neither side was justifiable in its course during and preceding the war, I do not think we should hold up the prominent actors as models to be imitated by the young, but as examples of men carried away by the violence of party spirit into error. Doubtless the great body of those engaged in the war thought they were doing right- but all history teaches that the sincerity o men cannot be taken as proof that their actions are good. If my views are not absolutely correct, it will do good for the young who are now being taught that the war against secession was exceedingly righteous, and the great civilians and Generals on the Union side - the greatest and best of men - to learn that there is another side to this question.
